I’m always up for checking out new wordpress themes and what people come up with. Since, I’m in no mood of changing my current Theme… still, these themes make me drool and I only wish that I can go and use them! On a note, I’m very choosy in theme selection so you might not see a huge “number” of wordpress themes for May but these are surely one of the best.
Note: There is no favorite order of themes (by numbers)
1- BlueWeed by BlogOhBlog
Jai, from blogOhblog is one of my favorite designers since the themes he releases aren’t crap AT ALL and I’ve been giving his themes a priority whatsoever.
Blueweed is a great 3 column wordpress theme. It’s Gravatar-ready, WP2.5 Gallery-ready, Widget-ready, and includes tabbed sections for easy access to your content. Very very easy to use and install and you can change the logo from the PSD which is included in the theme (when you download)
2- Arthemia: WordPress Magazine Theme
This wordpress theme is the bomb! It’s not less than a premium paid theme in any situation! Arthemia is a news + blog theme so you can improvise all you want. The headline and Featured posts are amazingly easy to configure, all you need to do is add couple of categories called “headline” and “featured” and any posts in those categories will show up as linked.
The Categories section looks awesome too. So what are you waiting for? Check it out!
3- Zoxengen by Dezzain
Richie-K released this theme in late April (28th) and this is a sweet theme. Best thing about Richie is that he gets almost every plugin that you need in a theme, test it and then release it. Placement is always great and his wordpress themes look professional.
Zoxengen comes with these cool features and a lot more:
1. 3 column left content layout
2. Widgetize sidebars
3. 4-6 block 125Ã—125 ads in sidebar
4. social tool in single page only to save load time
5. theme option
6. custom field
7. jslide featured articles *added ability to turn off in theme option
8. net-subscribes included in sidebar with alexa tool and technorati tools
9. post-styling (downloads, caption etc) *theme page explained
10. top header and single page adsense block *remove the code if not used
11. plugin integrated as listed below
12. Compatible with wordpress version 2.1+
4- Structure 1.2 By Justin Tadlock:
Okay, this theme is a no doubt for pros! an Amazing news typo wordpress theme which I couldn’t get a hold of because of my lack of tech side – My Patience was the main cause here since Justin and couple of guys agreed to help me out in setting this theme up but I thought that in the future I might not be able to cope with Structure so lets learn something first then jump in
Structure is a perfect theme for news/magazine sites with a blog-friendly option too. Featuring, built-in video and image features that easily allow you to customize your site, content blocks that you can place virtually anywhere on the page and much much more.
5- Massive Press by WP-Elements
MassivePress is a 3 column widget enabled WordPress theme featuring a thumbnail based posting style which gives you the ability to get more content in front of your users in a way that is clean and organized. WP-Elements released a dark theme, Charred before that. It was good but since no one likes dark themes, it still managed to grab some attention. But Massive Press shocked everyone.. The theme itself is a master piece and in my opinion a must download.
I hope you like these themes and if you do.. feel free to support me by subscribing to my updates
